CPR, or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is an emergency life-saving procedure that is done when someone's breathing or heartbeat has stopped, which could be due to a variety of reasons such as electric shock, heart attack, choking, or drowning. CPR combines rescue breathing and chest compression techniques that require supervised training to ensure CPR providers have the skills they need to assist in crisis situations. The training is introduced to first year medical students once in every semester and the goal is to educate & prepare students on how to effectively respond in an emergency. The mandatory CPR class was held on Saturday February 17 at 9:00am, supervised by Mr. Pius Benjamin, Certified Paramedic of St Jude’s Hospital.
